Manchester United are reportedly closing in on signing Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.
According to the Mirror, the French international will join the 20-time English champions on Wednesday (1 July). He had an impressive season with the Saints and was instrumental in the midfield for Ronald Koeman side's 1-0 victory over United at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have already made a £25m ($39.3m) bid and their offer has been accepted by the South Coast club. United chief executive Ed Woodward met with the 25-year-old's agent in Paris and has already brokered a deal to bring him to Old Trafford.
Schneiderlin's form has seen him attract interest from Arsenal. However, the Daily Mail claims the emergence of Francis Coquelin in the second half of the season has forced Arsene Wenger to end his side's interest in the Southampton star.
With the north London club ending their interest in signing the midfielder, United are now in a firm position to secure Schneiderlin's signature. He has already admitted that his future should be resolved in the coming days, before the start of Southampton's pre-season training.
The Frenchman will earn £100,000 a week ($157,470) at United, reports the Mirror. He is set to become Louis van Gaal's second summer signing after he completed a deal to sign Dutch international Memphis Depay.
Meanwhile, French publication L'Equipe says Schneiderlin has agreed a four-year deal with the Old Trafford club. The Southampton player's arrival will not end United's interest in Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The German international has one year left on his contract at the Allianz Arena and has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford. The Manchester Evening News reports the former Barcelona manager wants to sign both Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger.
With the Schneiderlin deal set to be sealed in the coming days, Van Gaal and United will turn their attention to signing the Bayern midfielder as the Dutch man looks to bolster his squad for the next season.
Schweinsteiger is currently in England with his girlfriend Ana Ivanovic. The German will be supporting the tennis star ahead of the 2015 Wimbledon, starting 29 June.
